Large area deposition of YBa2Cu3O7-(delta ) is desirable for cost-effective production of thin superconducting films at larger scale. Our technique of thermal co-evaporation should be particularly well suited for this goal because it is intrinsically homogenous. We have achieved large area deposition by using a rotating disk heater with an oxygen pocket. This arrangement allows for intermittent metal deposition and oxidation scheme with which we fabricate separated zones.Here we present a improved version of this deposition scheme with which we fabricate high quality YBCO films on an area which is 9 inches in diameter. The area is used for simultaneous deposition on smaller wafers, e.g. 12 wafers of 2 inches, or for large sapphire wafers of 8 inches.
